International observers estimated that Ukraine would fall within days following Russia’s full-scale invasion. A year on, Ukrainian society continues to demonstrate extraordinary defiance and the Ukrainian Armed Forces show unprecedented resistance to the occupying troops.

In this Sydney Ideas talk, Dr Olesya Khromeychuk will discuss the reasons why we might have underestimated Ukrainian resilience and overestimated Russia's might following the events of February 2022. She will then propose the lessons that the democratic world has learned over the past twelve months.

Dr Olga Boichak, prominent sociologist and frequent commentator on the Russian-Ukrainian war in the media, hosts this event.
